I used to travel through the Waco airport several times a month, and Mr. Pearson always recognized and greeted me with a huge smile and helped me with my bags. After checking in, I would hang out with Mr. Pearson while waiting on my flight. He was such a sweet, kind, and funny person. He made travel so much more pleasant. Rest well good and faithful servant, and may God bless you.
